Test shots of flaming torches

In a month or two, I will be shooting a music video in which a group of people will be running through the woods with burning torches. So to prepare for this we took some test shots this week on the Red Epic camera.

I turned on the camera’s HDR facility (which takes a normally exposed version of the footage and another under-exposed version) and combined them in Photoshop. Here are the results for one frame of the footage:

A001_C006_0226AG_0001334-PS-Blended

This was made up from the following two exposures:

A001_C006_0226_Aframe and A001_C006_0226_Xframe

I combined the 2 exposures in Photoshop with a layer mask and then added a curves correction to the lighter exposure.
